  1. I don’t know what to think about this. There is even a map in the link. Of the 250 communities, none are in Utah, Nevada, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Delaware, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. It appears Louisiana has a lead here…maybe the crime rate should be an added parameter. Although these places have large Gen Y/Millennial cohorts, it does not mean they are hip and it can mean the opposite. However, Louisiana does appear to have many things that other states will never have. The culture is perfect for writers, musicians, and artists. Even when not here individuals write, compose, or paint the state with huge success. Also upward mobility is great for all the needed scientist.
